Volunteers are needed at the City Mission to help fill backpacks every week. Opportunities to volunteer on an individual or group basis are available.
City Mission of Schenectady is now utilizing a volunteer website. If you're interested, please visit their website and click “Get Started” under “Service Opportunities” for available dates to “Pack Backpacks – Individuals." You can sign up there!

For more information on how to become a volunteer for the Weekend Backpack Program, contact Volunteer@citymission.com or call 346-2275, ext. 311. 

"Weekend Backpack is making a difference. But many more children need this assistance,” said Robert Carreau, Executive Director at The Schenectady Foundation. “The community’s support will make expansion to more children possible."
